I posted my reply over at Hook to LiA, with more of the stories my bros told me of the SF music scene, and BloomF was one they idolized...they always spoke of how he dis'd the SF bands and such, and how much better he was...not to feed into the DEAD bashing, and of course, we learned to appreciate them and the other SF bands in their own way, but it was interesting to hear what some of the more accomplished musical types thought of the scene at the time...I think this heavily influenced my older bros to steer me more toward CREAM and BlFaith and others, and never really got why I went ape for the DEAD when they gave me all this other stuff...

Ditto. Bloomfield had Jewish soul. :) Too bad he was a junkie.

Did you see that footage of EBishop at the closing of the Fillmore? The guy was amazing...

Long time ago. Yeah, I thought he was real good, but within a narrower range. I don't see him as much of a leader as I see others.
